When space is at a premium in your house, you need to think twice and utilize what little space you have for more storage. Sometimes you find the most unpredictable locations for storage ideas and they turn out to be very convenient. One example is that little space under the stairs. It can totally be a perfect addition for storage purposes. If you are looking for some DIY under stairs storage ideas, we’ve got you covered!
Tuck in Shelves
No more dead space under your stairs. Alter it into your favorite spot to stash your stuff or even kitchen appliances. We’ve decided to start off our DIY under stairs storage thread with a trick most people can do in under a few minutes. The easiest thing you can do even if you don’t want those extra hammering work is by mounting simple open tiered shelves. Mount several of those things and voila! You already got convenient storage. If you want a more elaborate place to store your stuff then go for custom doors. You can add glasses so that you can see from the outside. Furthermore, no matter how little the space is, adding a light bulb is not a bad idea.
Storage can mean a lot of thing and this totally includes books! If you are a bookworm and have loads of collection of books, instead of storing them away in an enclosed closet, why not display them for your guests to see? Opt for open shelving with several tiers. You can design them so that each shelving is a different size so as to make it look attractive. Having various sizes in width and height can accommodate a lot of things especially if you want to change this storage for other purposes other than bookcase (for example, kitchen pantry). This cubby style is easier to build than you might think. It would make a great addition for your chic interior. Not only can you store your books there but also display your antique collections and knick knacks as well. It’s a great storage for key bowl as well especially if your stairs are located right next to the main door.
Your personal wine cellar does not always have to be in a dark and dingy basement or your attic. If you are a wine enthusiast and want easy and convenient access to your wine stock any time then consider converting your empty under the stair space into your wine cellar. By mounting several shelves you already have empty storage to stash your wine bottles. Or buy those cute decorative wine racks off of amazon or from your local store. If you are fashion conscious, then you will agree that the way you position your wine bottles will affect the surrounding area of the storage. Go for a stylish solution with acrylic construction. It will go well with your minimalist and contemporary interior design. Or if you want to make a statement with your wine storage, then go for the Pinetti Wine Rack designed by former illusionist Tony Potter.
These DIY under stairs storage ideas prove that you can always make something out of nothing!
